I'll warn you in advance that this is going to be a long post  Smiley . I've been meaning to post this jacket for awhile. I made it for my flat pattern class last semester and received an A- on it. There is a skirt that goes along with it but for some reason I can't find those pictures...oops! Well, I hope you enjoy it!

This is the front view on one of our dressforms:

Inside the pocket:


Fully Lined!


This is the presentation board I made to go with my project:

The Target Market description says: "This collection will appeal to the woman who likes to indulge in a daily cappuccino. She can spend hours in a caf reading a classic novel or just people-watching as long as she has that cup of coffee. She enjoys poetry and art and works at a bookstore or in an art gallery. She lives in the city and enjoys the culture that comes with that lifestyle. She is in her 20s or 30s, but carries a maturity beyond her years. She likes to wear rich, warm colors, just like she likes rich, warm coffee." Yah...I'm kind of cheesy  Roll Eyes


Let me just tell you, that was the most awful tweed I've ever worked with. It was just unraveling at the speed of light and I went through almost two bottles of fray check! I'm not the greatest fan of the piping (it was my first ever attempt), but overall I'm happy with my jacket (and my skirt, which isn't pictured). I hope you guys like it too!  Smiley

Why'd you get an A-? It totally looks like an A+++++++ to me!

aw, thanks everybody for the lovely comments! I was definitely inspired by my almost daily trips to Starbucks and/or Brewhaha(local coffeehouse chain). Too bad we have to make our garments to fit the dressforms and not ourselves (usually) or else I would totally wear it!

Oh and the reason I got an A- was because the piping was a little wonky and the facing in the cuffs was too big so it wadded up, plus a few other more nitpicky details.

I'm really glad to hear such nice reactions to it though...you guys have totally made my day!  Cheesy

Love the description and LOVE the pockets, the Peter Pan collar and the piping.  If thought I would fit me, I'd PM you with an offer this moment.  It is that gorgeous.
